Rehab Warns of Common Fentanyl Street Names

One of the oldest rehab centers in the state, Serenity Lane of Bend, Oregon, recently published an article educating residents about the street names for fentanyl. With their long history in the field of substance use, they post informative articles to help the community better understand substance use in all its forms.

Serenity Lane knows that the average reader isn’t up-to-date on all slang, especially regarding substance use. Being able to identify these street names, however, allows readers to better identify when their loved one might be engaging with substance use. Street names, Serenity Lane explains, are slang terms or nicknames that are used to talk about substances.

In the article, Serenity Lane takes the time to set readers' expectations regarding the information available: “We aim to provide an overview of these terms, but it’s important to note that we cannot cover them all. Slang of any kind will constantly be changing, and may even vary slightly from region to region.”

“The main point of street names is to talk about the drugs without the notice of law enforcement. If every street name were well known, this would not be very effective!” Serenity Lane further explains. “It’s important to emphasize that street names are constantly changing, and the internet has only sped this process up. Any list of names can’t be fully comprehensive, at least not for very long.”

The Pacific Northwest rehab center takes the time to list common, known street names for fentanyl and also breaks down many known emojis that are used to talk about fentanyl and substance use. This ranges from generic drug-related emojis to one used specifically for fentanyl.

On top of speaking on street names, Serenity Lane dives partially into some of the prescription varieties of fentanyl. While not as commonly seen on the illicit market, the misuse of prescription medications is common amongst painkillers like fentanyl. They take the time to explain the different kinds of fentanyl medications to the reader and the common brand names associated with them.

For parents reading this piece, Serenity Lane touches on how to approach this topic with your kids. “Keep the conversation relevant and direct - don’t try to sugarcoat any language. It’s important to communicate any danger, as well as be realistic and open about how to recognize when fentanyl is being discussed.”

This piece provided by a reliable source such as Serenity Lane is a good guide and reference for anyone in the community. Knowledge about substance use is one of the primary ways to lower stigma and spot someone who needs help. Those interested can find the article linked above.
